Thor in the “Lebowski” version was one of the great surprises of Avengers: Endgame, but according to what the screenwriters revealed some scenes with the character were shot long before the movie.
The shooting of the moments in which we see Bro Thor and Rocket on Asgard in search of the Gem of Reality, in fact, date back to before Thor: Ragnarok.
“We shot the first film and then the second, with the exception of the scenes on Asgard,” co-writer Stephen McFeely said during an interview with Hollywood Unscripted. “The cathedral scenes were planned at the beginning even if they were for the second film. So they have shot two years ago. It always makes me crazy that we used the heavy Thor long before the release of the first movie.”
After the writers revealed that the cast members were confused by the particular look of Thor, which we remember he let go after the burning defeat received by Thanos in Infinity War, director Joe Russo added that “Ragnarok had not even been shot. “
Chris Hemsworth will return in the role of the God of Thunder with Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth chapter dedicated to the character directed by Taika Waititi in which Natalie Portman will debut as the new Mighty Thor. The film will be released in theaters on November 5, 2021, as part of Phase 4 of the MCU.
